This year, Mivi has released a variety of wireless earbuds under various price ranges and categories. We have been using the brand-new Mivi DuoPods A650, one of its newest releases, for more than two weeks. The TWS earphones have features like ENC, custom-tuned EQ, 13mm electro-dynamic bass drivers, and more, and they cost about Rs 1,500. The device is advertised as having a 55ms low latency and 55 hours of playing. Is the cost of these TWS justified? Check out the Mivi DuoPods A650 review below to find out.

Mivi DuoPods A650 review: Design
Let’s begin by talking about how it looks. The Mivi Duopods A650’s body is shaped like a pebble. Although the device comes in a variety of colours, we have the blue version. Even though the earphones’ housing is made of plastic, it is sturdy enough to endure accidental falls. Furthermore, a lot of scratches are drawn to the shiny sheen.
They have four vertically positioned LEDs on the front that light up, along with the Mivi logo, and red and blue LEDs on the earphones that indicate pairing status and battery life, respectively. At the bottom is a USB-C port for powering the charging case. Mivi has provided a USB-C cable within the box.
The case is very luggable thanks to its lightweight. There are no buttons on the charging case for the Mivi DuoPods A650 earbuds. It starts looking for a device to pair with as soon as the case is opened.
You can see that the earphones are securely fit into the correct slots when you lift the case’s lid. To keep the earbuds in place, the casing has built-in magnets. Out of the box, the earphones are incredibly lightweight and stem-like appearance.
In terms of comfort and fit, the earbuds are slightly hard to wear while you are sleeping, so if you use them for an extended period, you may get ear irritation and pain. If you enjoy listening to music while you sleep, this product is not for you.
You can select between songs, accept or turn down phone calls, and enable the voice assistant with the touch sensors in both earbuds. We discovered that there is a delay when pausing or resuming it and that the touch response is slow.
Mivi DuoPods A650 review: Performance
The Mivi Duopods A650 have an IPX4 rating, so you can use them whenever you want, in the gym or while working out in the rain.
After initial setup, you only need to remove the earbuds from the charging case, connect them to your device, and they will instantly pair. The Bluetooth 5.1 version is supported by the Mivi Duopods A650 earphones, which also have a wireless range of about 10 metres.
The 13mm electroplated bass drivers in the Duopods have a frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz. The earbuds sound okay in terms of audio quality and are acceptable for casual use but do not provide professional-grade audio quality. An overly deep bass response is heard.
The voices irritating and pinching at high volumes, we identified certain difficulties. The sound was also significantly louder than other gadgets we’ve recently tried. Because the music sounds a little distorted when the volume is set all the way up, it is advised to maintain it at 80% or lower.
Additionally, Mivi provides ENC (Enviromental Noice Cancellation) with the Duopods A650, which is effective at blocking out background noise while making phone calls. The Duopods A650’s lack of app support is another frustrating feature, in addition to its distorted loud volume. Sadly, Mivi does not yet have an app for its TWS products.
The Duopods A650’s battery life, however, is exceptional. These Mivi earphones’ 500mAh battery offers 55+ hours of nonstop use (claimed by the company). The case provides around 9 hours of talk time and may recharge the earbuds five times. A quick 10-minute charge might give the battery backup a 10-hour runtime. More than an hour is needed to fully charge both the buds and the charging capsule.
The Duopods A650’s battery life is excellent and allows for continuous use for up to 9–10 hours. Loud and clear audio can be heard through the microphone. However, because it is extremely loud and the bass is over-boosted, and the sound quality is not particularly impressive. The connectivity strength is excellent, and the entire design is good too. Yes, these are suitable for gaming because of its low latency. As a whole, this product is good except for how painful and uncomfortable the earphones are to wear for longer durations due to its design and thickness.
Mivi DuoPods A650 Pros
- Good for gaming
- The entire design is good too
- Excellent battery life
Mivi DuoPods A650 Cons
